Wot I Think: Hell Yeah!

By Nathan Grayson on December 1st, 2012.

Hell Yeah! isn’t really the sort of title you’d expect to see attached to something subdued and contemplative, and sure enough, Arkedo’s action-heavy Metroidvania is about as ridiculous, random, and fourth-wall-shattering as they come. But as the likes of Hamlet and Pee-Wee Herman have taught us, there’s an art to madness. It can be brilliantly amusing and useful, sure, but if it’s a crutch for something that’s fundamentally broken, well, you’ve just got a loud mess instead of quiet one.

Published by Sega and developed by Arkedo, who made three minimalist but stylish games for XBLIG and PSN, Hell Yeah is a loud tale of revenge, rubber duck shame tapes and the rabbity prince of Hell.
